For nearly two centuries scholars, critics, radicals, and revolutionaries have wrestled with the ideas that Thoreau presented in Walden, his exploration of self-reliance, self-reflection, and self-discovery. Now, readers can engage with this American masterpiece in a brand new way with “The Journal Edition.”
In this new edition of the classic text, ample space is given for readers to record their thoughts right alongside Thoreau’s words. Here, readers are encouraged to not just passively read what Thoreau wrote, but to actively engage with his philosophy, to respond to his worldview, and to internalize his life-changing message.
This volume is not only a book. It is a tool to study one of the great works of American literature. Our hope is that it will lead you to new insights, to new ways of looking at the world, and to a determination to, like Thoreau, live deliberately, whatever that may mean for you.
